    Is this a complete camera?

    Hi folks, I'm having a rough time identifying if this is a complete outfit or not.
    I'm helping go through a widows husbands equipment and it is scattered where only he would have known what belonged where. Anyway, can someone please
    help and let me know if this is complete or does it belong to a larger body? I can't tell with the funny knobs on the front.

    It is a super angulon 47mm f8 in a helical mount in a shutter labeled Graflex Sycchro-compur. I found a 120 roll film holder with a 2.25x3.25 mask and it attaches like it belongs there? There is so much stuff I have to go through yet and I am wondering if this is complete or I haven't found the rest of the camera It's kind of a slick little unit! Can anyone give me a reasonable value of this?

    I appreciate any help you can give us! pics below
    regards

    It shure looks complete, cute !
    It is a wide-angle 6x9 camera, maker ??? Value ? No idea, check at KEH for the value of the lens and back and then add quite a bit for the housing and the sportsfinder.

    Great little thing and a lot smaller than a RB67 with 50mm lens.

    By the way, it is a MF camera, as you have figured out by now.

    Question: what does it say on top of the sportsfinder ? It might give you an other clue.

    Hi Erik,
    This is a Graflex XLSW. It's basically a roll film back slapped on the back of a large format lens. Most of the XL were rangefinders, but they made this little zone-focusing outfit too, because the rangefinder models were large. It looks complete. It should consist of a lens cone with focusing mount, a film back, and the wire sight. You could replace the wire site with a viewfinder if you wanted too. The 47mm super-angulon is relatively equal to 21mm on a 35mm outfit. I think the outfit is probably worth $400-600 in good working condition, but I haven't looked at prices lately. I'm selling it's cousin, a Brooks Veriwide, on eBay right now. It's the same lens with a 6x9 XL back. I'm hoping it'll go for around $1000. I think it'll bring a premium, because it's 6x9, and doesn't have the plastic focus mount that the XL line does, but you might be pleasantly surprised.

    Cambo and Sinar make/made this type of camera on 4x5 inch, maybe (but I would need a pic of the bottom side) a pistol grip belongs to it.
    Is there a tripod mounting at the bottom ?
    Can the lens be taken off ? If YES: there could be more lenses that fit this little one (I fell in love with it)
